Help children find the fun in reading

ABC to read, England, Reading
South East, Free

Berkshire charity ABC to Read have been working with volunteers for over 10 years to mentor youngsters who are struggling with their reading. Reading is a core skill that defines future prospects and the support that ABC to Read volunteer mentors provide for the children they work with has resulted in tangible improvements in the children’s attitudes towards reading. ABC to read are running a recruitment drive this week to recruit, train and support volunteers who would like to help children find the fun in reading. Reading mentor, Jenny Cooney, said: “To see a child emerge from the constraints of struggling to read fluently and being able to have the time to guide them and encourage them to a level of reading which will, almost certainly, improve their life chances is frankly the best feeling in the world and certainly a privilege!” .
